I have a "Garage Queen" GE Monogram Side by Side Refrig model # ziss480nrbss and have been told by a service tech that inverter part # wr55x10504 needs replacement. The problem is the Embraco VEGT 8 H compressor is not starting and the tech said the compressor checked good. Can I test / repair a componet on the inverter that may be at fault?

 I have read on a forum, which was describing the same type compressor no start problem on a similar GE model, the suggestion of checking / testing the compressor start relay. I'm not sure if my unit has such a relay and I plan to purchase a service manual  but in the mean time, would anyone know if this fault can be fixed without having to replace the complete inverter part. I read online over and over where the fix to this compressor no start problem is to remove and replace the inverter. The best price I have found is through searspartsdirect for $371, which includes shipping and tax and they offer a 90 day return / exchange policy.

Oh well,  just trying to save a buck!

Thanks, Paul
